Hi, I've started working on my engine bay recently and added Password:JDM stuff such as fender washers, rad stay bracket, battery tie down, resprayed rocker cover and reservoir socks, all bits are red. I've still got some stuff left to do such as wind screen washer hose replacement, I was wondering if anyone knows what size hose I need? Also the same for coolant reservoir hose and the ground wire which connects to rocker cover, how can I add colour to it?

DONT>>

post a pic of your bay.
You dont want to go over board it will look ricey.

and on the ground wires i believe they are all 8gauge wires. If you replace them you upgrade them to 6ga. and clean all the grounding/mounting points.
Adding color to them is as easy as buying colored insulated speaker wire.

rad hose will be car match. If they arent then dont buy them. (hell ebay even sells kits for this)

overflow hose. Just take it to autozone and get them to match it and see what size it is.


BUT AS SAID. post a pic as doing to much will look ricey.

but "To each there own".

Did i go overboard?
Yes.

I would have stop at main rad hose, intake, and valve cover.
That's just a bit to much.

The slash of color is suppose to be a highlight.
You wouldn't hight let a whole page in a book would you?

Adding a turbo to your dress up items will score more visual points then all that colored crap!

All the $$ you paid for these "dress up" items couldve been used for more productive build.

Here's a pic of my engine bay which I took a week ago, only thing missing is reservoir socks as I put them recently but forgot to take pic.


What's done is:
Normal red rocker cover and strut bar (Not wrinkle red but love to)
PW:JDM red rad stay bracket
PW:JDM red fender washers
PW:JDM VTEC solenoid cap
Standard battery brace in normal red. Do have PW:JDM but don't fit as battery has water caps. Any other suggestions?
Whale penis intake
4-2-1 manifold

What I've got to do:
Chrome Mugen oil cap
Heat wrap manifold in black

What I want to do in the future:
Red spark plug leads
Air con delete
Slim rad cooling fan
Replace all rusty bolts with PW:JDM red fender washers
Red power steering fluid cap lol
Red ground wire
Red rad hose
Red windscreen washer jet hose
Probably wire tuck, mainly the one close to air filter and power steering bottle. Possible others if not difficult job. Would like to keep power steering and ABS though.


Am I not asking for too much red lol

I cant believ people actually pay for pwjdm stuff. Its expencive i would sooner do real mods. All that you spent on look could have got you a chipped p28, wideband o2 and a used cam. Even chea jumper harness to convert to obd1.

Im going to stay out of this thread, colors are gay, they dont add anything. Well people that have no sweet clue about cars thinks it looks flashy but people that know anything at all can see past it and realize you wasted money making your car look more flashy, not better in anyway. No incress in preformance, but money spent, its a thing called form over function. . Myself im a function over form guy.
I dont give a fuck how it looks, shes all about how it works. Rusty old peice of shit spinning thrid is funner then a clean looking 17 second civic imho
